From Jasmine Zimmer-Stucky and Regna Merritt, Co-Directors of the Power Past Coal coalition:
Today, 11/14, the proposed Millennium coal export terminal was delivered another major roadblock. The Cowlitz County Hearing Examiner denied two shoreline use permits for the proposed Millennium coal export terminal for failing to meet the requirements of the Shoreline Management Act. This decision marks the fourth independent denial of project permits. Without these permits, Millennium cannot go forward.
From Rogue Riverkeeper – Make a call – On Wednesday, November 15, call Governor Brown and leave her a message asking her to stop the fracked gas project in Oregon. Here’s a script with example talking points, a form for you to track your call, and a Facebook page to spread the word.
